Falling is one of the more interesting hacks out there. With a very strange path to explore initially and wacky item order, it really stands out compared to a lot of other hacks made in the same mold. (i.e. hacks that are somewhat vanilla, but completely new layout.) Some very fun times are had exploring the world, until you find a boss.

The major downside is that all four major bosses have been given so much extra health and damage that they become more of a chore. They certainly feel like bosses now, but they seem so out of place in this hack.

In spite of that, I still had a really fun time with this hack, and would highly recommend it. Definitely worth a playthrough just for an idea on to do a wacky item progression and pull it off if nothing else.

No completion stats.
The Good: The wacky layout and item order. The hack is certainly called "falling" for a reason.
The Bad: Overpowered bosses made for the weakest point in the hack. I hope you enjoy slowly grinding down health.
The Ugly: Mid-2000's half-hack tiling needs to be banished.

Overall a fun hack though and a nice change of pace that shows you don't always have to go all out to make your hack an enjoyable ride, if you have a neat concept and the skill to execute it well. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Not going to lie, I used cheats to beat the bosses. There really isn't a reason to buff the boss so much that it's not even challenging, it's just a chore.

At least it's the only downside to this hack. Fun item order and good level design overall!
